Posted by NewOrleansSaints.com on 09/28/2011 – 3:01 pm

The New Orleans Saints offensive line came in at No. 3 with an 85.7 score in the New York Life Protection Index week three rankings.

The Patriots came in at No. 1 on the list with a 91.9 score followed by the Bills with a 90.6 mark.

The Protection Index is the authoritative measure of a team’s aptitude in pass protection. In today’s football, the ‘golden age’ of passing, a pro football team’s ability to protect the quarterback is a key attribute to winning games.

About the New York Life Protection Index

The New York Life Protection Index was created by sports information leader STATS to provide a composite gauge for this undervalued component of the game. While the New York Life Protection Index is calculated using a proprietary formula, the fundamentals are comprised of the length of a team’s pass attempts combined with penalties by offensive linemen, sacks allowed and quarterback hurries and knockdowns. The New York Life Protection Index is updated weekly throughout the regular season.
